Ben is back in the opera house, this time in Stockholm making his debut with the Royal Swedish Opera in six performances of Mozart The Magic Flute, opening on Saturday 26 August.
Earlier this year he made a hugely successful debut with Stuttgart Opera when Der Neue Merker said of his Marriage of Figaro:
"Gernon lets Mozart’s music be a classic in the best sense of the word. Its attraction comes through quite naturally in a fresh and balanced interpretation like this one."
Opera is a great passion of Ben’s and he looks forward to many new opera productions in the comings seasons, including his return to Glyndebourne Touring Opera this autumn with The Barber of Seville following last year’s success with Don Giovanni, and his debut with English National Opera in 2018/19, details to be announced next year.
